The Unmentionable Alternative

Students of the MSM as explicated by Lakoff, McLuhan and Chomsky will be interested to see Diary of a Heartland Radical’s take on how we are being led, by misdirection and omission, to continue our war without end in Afghanistan. The media frame stretches from Rachel Maddow on the left to Fox on the right, but one thing remains outside it: a halt to the killing.

There is no discussion of other options, gradual but steady demilitarization of western troops, initiating dialogue with the “enemy,” reconceptualizing the “enemy” (that is the perpetrators of 9/11 rather than the former Taliban regime), and perhaps most importantly, drawing upon regional states, relevant secular and religious leaders, and others to launch a South Asia Peace Conference.
